Shops Available - Turn Back Time

Shepton Mallet town is changing, niche independents who offer a unique choice of hand-crafted, art, fashion, vintage, interiors and antiques are beginning to transform the town. Slowly but surely we are seeing positive signs. Enthusiasm is brewing....we just need a bit of sunshine to kick start 2013

In my view, the priority for the town is to attract more businesses to lease the available shops. I cannot believe there are two prime locations in the Market Place.
Two shops available to let -  the right shop was featured in Turn Back time
Do you remember how the shop above looked during the filming of Turn Back Time are some of the wonderful memories
The Victorian Shop
The food spilled into the square on Market day outside the Sergisons shop 
Shop Display cabinets made everything look desirable 
Vegetables looked so much more appealing on natural sack cloth and eggs laid 
on straw...simple effective merchandising

The Edwardian store

Style became a little more sophisticated, simple and symmetrical

Displays Artistic 

The town was vibrant during the filming and I don't see why we can't get a little bit of it back. 

I am on a mission to find businesses. Firstly, has anyone ideas for the type of shop that would work in the Market Place? Please forward your ideas to and I will spread the word.

There is a group called SMS (Shepton Mallet Shops) looking at exciting events for the town

P.s My next SHOP WATCH  ....Penny's Sweet Shop  (success stories)
